Ah yes, one of the best holidays of the year. A full weekend of partying where you can be (almost) as weird as your heart desires without any shame, ridiculous costumes, candy, and all that other fun stuff that comes with Halloween. If you hate on this time of year, then you simply don’t know how to have fun. We at Magnetic want you to do it proper for this weekend of haunted fun, so we figured it’d be best to premiere a brand new mixtape today to get you ready for the evening. This time around, we have the pleasure of giving you all a mix from Good Night Keaton! For those unaware, Good Night Keaton is the alias of Miami Horror‘s drummer, Aaron Shanahan. When he’s not on beat duty in the band, he can be found behind the decks and this mix proves his versatility as an artist / overall party animal. Anyway, here’s what the man himself had to say about the indie-dance filled set:
“It’s Halloween and what better way to dance with those ghosts in high spirits than with the Good Night Keaton “Beetlejuice” mixtape. Make sure you say it and play three times to enhance your listening pleasure. Am i qualified to do this? Ah. Well… I attended Juilliard… I’m a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I’ve seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT… NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT YOU’RE TALKING TO A DEAD GUY… NOW WHAT DO YOU THINK? You think I’m qualified?
Get ya freak on!”
